The Force Awakens's John Boyega Walked the Star Wars Celebration Floor in Disguise
What do you do if you're at Star Wars Celebration as both talent and a fan? You walk the floor incognito, of course! Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega walked the floor dressed as - what else? - a Stormtrooper, successfully hiding his identity from the unsuspecting fans who would have loved to swarm him:

I hope whoever this fan is recognizes himself in this picture. Because, you know, life made and everything.

Boyega isn't the first to walk the floor of a convention behind the safety of a mask; Daniel Radcliffe, Peter Jackson, and who knows how many others have all bumped shoulders with unwitting fans at cons. So next time you're at a convention, remember that any number of people hiding behind masks might be your favorite celebrities.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens also stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver. The film comes out in theaters on December 18.
